About SA Tigers

The athletic program at Suffield Academy has a long and storied tradition, and we are proud of our recent success as well. Our teams have won 28 league or New England titles over the last five years, and 17 different Suffield sports teams have finished in the top four or better. Athletics at Suffield are about much more than winning and losing. We believe sports build and strengthen character. Our program will encourage you to stay in good physical shape, make new friends, learn the rules of fair play and sportsmanship, and benefit from being a member of a team.
